Such is the continuing popularity of Anthony among fans of the Bill & Gloria Gaither & Their Homecoming Friends marathon series that the back catalogue of the late pianist has been continually mined. These tracks emanate from 2000 and feature Richard Clayderman-style renditions of hymnody ("Holy Holy Holy"), film themes (theme from Exodus) and even a rendition of Larry Norman's "I Wish We'd All Been Ready" with a vocal by Russ Taff.
